Five artists meet inside a digital collage, inviting the audience to tour within its narrative connotations. What kind of narratives arise by their common experience of intimacy? Besuch team explores a diverse range of performative and compositional strategies, approaching dance through concepts of telepathy, idiocy, sensuality, seduction among others especially at a time when proximity is becoming a critical stake due to the pandemic.
A shared digital document of instructions filled with colorful ideograms, a microscopic plan made large-scale, a DIGI-persona, a painting of sensorial stimuli and a contract via post are the jointly common score to which the team commits. They exchange these five materials and promise to pay each other’s proposal a visit by means of a one-minute performance. Finally, they co-edit the 25 variations and thus compose “Besuch”. In turn, they are now inviting audiences to visit both the traces of their encounters as well as their collective artistic imprint.
